8th Annual Quarry Crusher Run
Offering up-close views inside one of the state’s oldest quarries and a running challenge like no other, Vulcan Materials Company hosts the 8th annual Quarry Crusher Run at its Columbia quarry near the Olympia neighborhood.
From a starting line at 611 Rosewood Drive, the race route goes past granite cliffs to the bottom of the quarry, then back to the top. Runners descend more than 475 feet on an average grade incline of 10 percent. Participants have three distance options: the 3.7 mile Quarry Crusher Run, the 7.4 mile Double Crusher, and the 11 mile Triple Crusher.
Registration is available online at https://quarrycrusherrun.com/columbia/. Race prices range from $40 to $60 and include official t-shirt and finisher’s medal. Discounts are available for military, first responders, teachers, students, and teams. Prizes are awarded to overall winners and age group placers.
Quarry Crusher Run Columbia benefits South Carolina Youth ChalleNGe Academy, an education program based at McCrady Training Center to help at risk teens increase academically, develop life coping skills, and have a chance to receive their GED.
